Finances can get messy quickly. You don't have to pretend you have everything together––I've seen my fair share of bookkeeping messes (and just so you know I LOVE cleaning up bookkeeping messes, so send them my way judgment-free!).
There are six practical steps you can take to get your on the right financial path:
Have you ever thought, if I could just make more money then I wouldn't be living client payment to client payment... then I would be rich?? (ok, maybe you haven't actually used the word rich but you catch my drift).
Well, I believe it isn't your income which determines your "richness." It's your spending habits. If you have bad spending habits, an increase in income will only mean an increase in spending. You get an extra client project and think "woohoo, I'm going on vacation!"
Suddenly, the extra money is gone and you didn't even go vacation yet. You didn't have extra money that you thought you would. Where did it go?
That is why you must focus on your spending habits. Here are some bookkeeper approved spending habits:
As a small business owner you don't have extra money to throw around.
I get that. I love saving money whenever I can. Which is why I want to let you in behind the scenes of my bookkeeping business.
The best time of year to start your new bookkeeping system is January 1. This keeps all your records for the year in one place and ensures tax time will be a breeze.
And the best time to hire a bookkeeper? February.
Seriously? YES! If you hire a bookkeeper in February it will be the least expensive because I don't need to clean up any previous months and your January bookkeeping is completed in February! That means there's no time for things to get confusing for you. Just hand it over to me and continue on with your life!
